I had a quick look, the "beginner" section of this book contains no actual beginner information and instead a lot of random words they say are "spells" to create things like volcanoes, hail storms and waves among other things, most of it being unrealistic at best.
Personally this doesn't seem like a great resource.
Hahahahaha wow that actually was not at all what I expected!
Ok, so I didn't read most of it. I only read the table of contents in full, skimmed a few sections, and concluded: No. It's hilariously not legit xD
Here's a few issues with the book:
1. It offers transformation spells.
* No spell can physically change how you appear or help you shapeshift. You need substance to create substance. Matter to form matter. Things like brews/potions/other physical methods can help you make tiny changes, but you can't shapeshift on this plane.
2. It offers impossible spells such as becoming indestructible. That should make this an obvious fake book based in logic. If there was a way to be invincible, throw fire, or become completely invisible, why is is
A. On the internet
B. Not commonly known/documented? People have been searching for this stuff forever. If its online like this? It would be world wide knowledge. This site is old enough we would alk know it by now.
3. Its beginner spell section literally claims that some spells are easier than others.
* This is just not true. Some spells are more complicated, take more steps, require more material/energy.
4. Its beginner spell section teaches no of the basics to casting or any aspect of witchcraft. It also tries to teach Latin as the way to cast spells.
* I will say that I speak Latin (if anyone can truly speak it) and it is fun to use in casting but this book won't teach you any of the bases to casting, or even any other aspect of witchcraft. You can't just cast, you need to prepare. And just because I say "Tu es mater motrium linguo est!" ("Your mother is a dead language!" - the ultimate come back when someone says Latin is a dead language) does mean anything will happen. Latin isnt inherently going to cast these impossible spells. You need intent for a spell to work, not just speak a not-at-all dead language.
5. It offers unlimited power without training (ex: "you can make anyone do anything" is a thing in this book if you just say the right words?)
* Tbis should be another given. No matter how much talent you think you have, you ALWAYS need to start with the basics. And trust me. You can't just control everything. If you could, wouldn't everyone be trying?
6. THERE ARE LITERALLY HARRY POTTER SPELLS IN THIS BOOK.
* I'm sorry, I'm laughing too hard at this aspect because it's not at all what I expected, especially since it follows a completely different spell format than the rest of the book that claims spells are cast through Latin phrases of literal translation. You'd think the author wouldn't do something so self contradicting.
I would say, and I'm sure most practitioners would say no, this spellbook isn't real.
I'd advise you to check out the beginner articles/videos on this site and read forums to get a grasp of things if you're interested. Also, spellbooks are ok when you're starting out but its always best to write your own spells!
I know the fluffier stuff wont work. Small effects at most. Not really anything. I did get light to come but mostly intent behind words that do not actually exist. Any word will work. But i have gotten some to work. Strange stuff

As others have said, that so-called spell book is nothing but nonsense and fantasy stuff. It's a waste of time trying to get things on there to work as they simply won't.
Now, if you want a spell book with some genuine spells in it, I would suggest " The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells " by Judika Illes. Or you could learn more about how magic really works and write your own spells. A good book on that is " Spells and How They Work " by Janet and Stewart Farrar.
